Is this going to be yet another tired old outing for the Weir-bashers? Where's your proof for this 'animosity' you speak so knowledgeably of?

Funny Rob, I believe my post indicates I have no proof. Why don't you actually take the time to read others posts before you get pissy. It's an observation based on the lack of communication, interaction and attitudes among the remaining members. As for Weir bashing, you are far from being acurate. I think they all equally bizzare in their post-jerry dealings. Quite frankly they could all retire from the music scene and i would not be phased one bit.

FINALLY!!! This board had been sinking deeper and deeper into a very depressing malaise recently. Now, I do love a civilized exchange of ideas as much as the next guy, but we do need some heated debate every now and then to spice things up (and wake up the casual reader). OK, carry on with the fisticuffs.

Funny Lobster - but you said 'Since weir is still alive and there is the animosity' and I asked you where your proof was that this animosity existed. If that's me getting pissy then so it goes, frankly.

Question to you wordsmith. Gut feel...do you think Lesh is comfortable playing weir songs at this point? I don't. If Weir were no longer with us I think he might as a tribute of sorts. Right now, since they haven't really played music together in 2-3 years, it might be awkward. Why do it with Phil and friends when you can do it as the dead? But since none of them really want to do that this point, something that "may" tip the hand to the animosity, it really doesn't matter.

Lobster - please check Elkdog's post elsewhere in this thread for what I feel may be very sound reasoning as to why Lesh doesn't play Weir. I think it's a question of 'fit' rather than awkwardness.

I did read his post and while he has some nice thoughts I find it hard to believe that lesh hasn't thought to play Sugar magnolia with Phil and friends on NYE. Either as a kick ass opener at midnight or a tribute to good friend Bill Graham. I'm not a musician, but i really don't think that song is so complicated that it wouldn't fit in his setlist.

Sugar Mags is a quintessentially Bobby song (in my opinion) and maybe Phil just doesn't feel he can bring more to the party than Weir does. Certainly Phil is happy to perform what we'd probably consider pure Jerry songs, but sadly Jerry isn't here to do them and I'm glad Phil is keeping that flame alive. I think, pure speculation again, that Phil had more of an affinity with Garcia than with Weir - but lack of affinity isn't proof of animosity of course.

I hope i just didn't start another catfight among posters with that slam.

Catfight? Naahh... just a robust exchange of views and all the more enjoyable for it. Where's the fun in agreeing all the time? :-)

OOOOOOOOOh, this is getting good!! Rob, this is why you are necessary here. Since Dire has gotten all soft on us lately, we need your acerbic tounge here more often. We do tend towards the dull if not checked from time to time. Thank you.

Oh, liked the crayon comment. That alone should be good for at least 7-8 posts calling you a junvenille oaf. Can't wait.

"Gadzooks!"? A word that: A) I haven't heard used in years, and B) I would never have expected you to use. Outstanding.

Always expect the unexpected - though never accept the expectorated.
